Federal Audit Court postpones review of Telebras contract

Monday 8 October 2018 | 11:57 CET | News
Brazil's Federal Audit Court (TCU) has decided to postpone until 31 October the hearing of the case over Telebras's contract with the Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovations and Communication to enable the electronic government service Gesac, reports Agencia Brasil. The trial should also examine the merits of the Telebras partnership with US company Viasat, which was suspended following a request by the National Union of Telephony Companies and Personal Mobile Service Providers (SindiTelebrasil). Until June, the Gesac service was provided by a consortium consisting of Embratel and Oi.
